5 out of 5 eggsNeat

Pros: Reliable, good color and contrast. No dead pixels. Has a good menu for personal preferences.

Cons: Has an odd yellowing, maybe it is just me, but the other 23' I have right next to it seems more vibrant, and more blue/colorful.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this if you can get it cheap, or on a sale rather. I really don't complain much, to me a monitor is a monitor, as long as it is in HD I am okay with it.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Monitors

Pros: They are very good quality monitors with great picture. I enjoy gaming on them and I don't see any delay from mouse to monitor. They also are great if you have more than one because there is little to no glare if you are looking at the screen from any angle.

Cons: The light on the monitor letting you know if it is on or not is very annoying. It blinks a bright blue when the computer is off and is on stand by. When I try to go to sleep with this bright blue blinking light can be very annoying. Besides that, all is good.

Other Thoughts: If you were to try to buy another monitor after you have already have gotten one, then there is a high possibility that it is a different model. I bought one, then i bought one a couple days later and a whole new model came out in those days. Not only is that annoying, but they look completely different. One is higher than the other, one has a bigger screen, and one doesn't have the annoying blinking blue light. It is a bit confusing. I strongly recommend you get one of these or buy two of them at the same time.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: - Cheap

Cons: Came DOA, sort of. I've had it turn on once, and only once. Customer service also wasn't of any use as they wanted me to pay for an over-the-phone tech service. No matter what I decide to do now, I have to pay more for a faulty product. Would not recommend.

2 out of 5 eggsSpeaker does not work

Pros: none

Cons: One additional note: the model I have is S241HL, instead of S242HL. S241HL specs says, also on the outside of the box, it has two speakers (1.6Wx2).

1 out of 5 eggsIt was good for 35 days!

Pros: Screen size

Cons: Poor quality, poor reliability, poor dependability

Other Thoughts: After abandoning Acer products for over 20 years, due to previous bad experiences with their quality, I thought I give them another chance after all these years! Maybe they have improved!

Big mistake!

I bought this monitor at a local store (well known, huge one).
It completely died on me after 35 days of only evening and weekend use. Store's policy for returns is of course 30 days.

I was able to negotiate with the store's general manager to return the monitor for a credit to by a 24" Samsung monitor.
It was just before Christmas, so I think the Holidays spirit might have played a role here!

So it was returned, and a new Samsung, 24" was purchased at the same time.
I have been very happy with the Samsung monitor.

No way on earth I would ever again consider buying an Acer product. I have seen their products fail on customers, friends, and relatives too many times, too early.

Acer needs to understand that price is not everything.
Quality and reliability is the most important thing to pay attention to.

As for me, it's another lesson learned. I'm done giving Acer anymore chances!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Monitor!

Pros: I have this running as my main display in a dual monitor configuration and considering replacing my existing second display as it has better contrast and color saturation then the older one of a premium brand. I have this monitor connected to 2 machines on a kvm switch, the second monitor is on the kvm so this ones auto input selector helps make the transition from system to system much easier.

Cons: Does not have the hardware for use with a wall mount, stand only has a tilt adjustment nothing for height something that a major PC builder includes with the monitor cabinet.

Other Thoughts: if you plan on buying more then one for a multi monitor setup this is a good option, do not mix with other brands as it will not sit at the same height and will likely not match the color temp as it is a current gen model.

5 out of 5 eggsAMAZING PICTURE

Pros: Great picture- the contrast ratio POPS on Blu Rays- The Lorax was so clear in 2D that it seemed as if i had a glasses free 3d monitor at times.... simply amazing.

Cons: I dont have six of them

Other Thoughts: Got this at a local store on sale for much less than newegg... (sorry newegg- but 60 bucks is 60 bucks...)
even at newegg's price though, I would buy more of these. I just happened to luck out with a local sale or I would've purchased here
